Tragic....Steve Perry died with his climbing partner Andy Nisbet on Ben Hope
The most active, prolific mountaineer that Scotland has ever produced. Both were gargantuan and inspiring figures in Scotland's mountaineering scene. A massive loss to us all.
Andy has climbed over 1,000-plus new winter routes all over Scotland, his enthusiasm was dynamic. Never in the history of Scottish mountaineering has anyone been so prolific or enthusiastic and introduced so many to the mountains especially in winter. Mr Nisbet, a former president of the SMC, had a vast knowledge of Scotland's mountains and his successful partnership with Mr Perry had resulted in a number of first ascents on Ben Hope in recent years.
Steve Perry was also a well-known mountaineer, who had completed an on-foot round of the Munros in the winter of 2005-06 and was a keen climber in both summer and winter, who listed new routing in winter Scotland as one of his favourite climbing experiences. Their deaths are a huge loss to the mountaineering community. They left a massive legacy irreplaceable and priceless.
Mr Nisbet was previously honoured at Fort William Mountain Festival, receiving the Scottish Award for Excellence in Mountain Culture in 2014, and has written numerous guidebooks.The festival said at the time: “Over the decades Andy has gone to incredible lengths to bring climbers a highly accurate and detailed record of the tens of thousands of climbs across Scotland in the SMC’s climber’s guidebook series.
"Andy’s life’s passion has been exploring and opening hundreds of new routes on Scotland’s mountains and sharing his unparalleled knowledge of the Scottish cliffs in his guidebooks.
"With almost 1,000 new winter routes to his name he has made far more first ascents in winter than any other Scottish climber.”

I'm the first Chinese person to climb all the Munros - and I did it for charity - Third Force News
My love of hill walking started when my only child went to university and I was feeling at a bit at a loose end, so I started walking on the Pentland Hills.
Two years ago, a friend suggested I join them for the 70 Munros Challenge to raise funds for Christian Aid.
Once I started, all I thought about was completing the 70 but then this year in May, I completely caught the bug again and I became determined to climb all 282, spending every single weekend and day off completing Munros. When I reached the top of the last one, I was absolutely delighted
I completed my final Munro with a large group of friends, colleagues and family. For many of them, including my son, Botao Zhou, a 21 year old student at Heriot Watt, it was their first Munro.

The reason I shoes to raise money for Christian Aid was that when we were growing up we were very poor
It’s been tough emotionally and physically climbing so many Munros in such a short space of time.
Last year on my birthday in November, I climbed Am Basteir on Skye. It was by far the most dangerous one I’d climbed as there was a thin layer of snow and it was really slippery and wet.
My family, friends and work colleagues have all been amazing and so supportive. I threw a party at the weekend to thank them and to say sorry for all the get togethers I’ve missed whilst trying to complete all the Munros before winter”.
The reason I shoes to raise money for Christian Aid was that when we were growing up we were very poor. I am not rich now but at least I have enough to feed myself, my family and have a roof over our heads. I’ve always wanted to help people living in poverty. This is why I’m supporting Christian Aid, to make their vision – to help end poverty - become reality”.
When I heard from the Scottish Mountaineering Club that I was the first person from China to have officially climbed all 282 Munros, it was fantastic news. I was actually quite emotional and I was proud for China to have finally reached my goal”.
I climbed my first Munro, Ben Narnain, in July 2015 and climbed the last one Meall Chuaich recently. I climbed most of the Munros with friends but climbed over hundred just on my own and 132 since May alone.
For my next challenge, I would like to walk the length of Hadrian’s Wall and I have three Corbetts in mind that I’d like to climb.
